Myrtle didn't get his coffee and then the wrong one was,brought out and he had to go and ask eventually for his flat white. MeAls were alright but staff need to communicate or at least acknowledge you when... More

They serve a range of Breakfast and cake.. Coffee and Tea are standard like everyone else in Mission Bay.. The place is a bit small if you have larger group.. But I will come back for a coffee and some nice cake with a friend or two....

Meal was lovely & really enjoyed our drinks (hot chocolate & ice coffee). Only let down for the meal was the service lacked a little - had empty cups & plates, when they brought... More

We chose this restaurant because a very friendly waiter came outside and encouraged us to come in from the pouring rain! He continued to serve us and... More

Riva Cafe is located near the seafront on Mission Bay. As it's the other side of the road from the beach, the view isn't that great. We all had the fish of the day, which was grilled snapper and chips. The food was good and the service was friendly and efficient. Overall we were pretty happy with the meal and... More

Really enjoyed my meal here. Had the market fish with risotto and veges. The meal was tasteful and I enjoyed every bite. They also offered a 15% discount on the bill if you had bought a movie ticket. I recommend this restaurant.

I was invited by a friend for brunch and was blown away by the service of Oxana, a Russian waitress that looked so well after us and by the food. Delicious food, fresh, abundant and well presented. It is a small place, lovely atmosphere, you can sit outside if you wish and enjoy the beautiful view of Mission Bay. Good... More

Right next door to the Cinema in Mission Bay is a cute cafe that has excellent service. You can get 15% off the meal if you have cinema ticket. So you get 2 in one. The excellent meals there were a treat to find and the serving team are homely , helpful and the meals delivered swiftly. Great Place

A moderately limited menu - but everything on it is delicious. Well-priced given its location on Mission Bay and great view of the sea. All-weather dining with a view, due to its clear plastic shelter walls. Parking can be found behind the restaurant.
